Namely, we just found out yesterday that my dear husband has bladder cancer tumors for the 4th time.
The first two times occurred in 2012. I may have that wrong, as the first time may have been discovered in 2011, and the second time in 2012–not sure. But it was all recent.
Each time, they were taken care of by the VA via a “transurethral resection (TUR)”. i.e. they pass a small wire loop through a cystoscope into his bladder, and zap away cancer cells with a burn or an electric current or laser. After the second time, I so remember when the surgeon came into the waiting room once it was done, and his exact words were “We plucked them!” Plucked them?? That made me laugh.
But when his tumors came back all over again earlier this year for the third time, and one was especially bad, I decided we needed to take further action about this ourselves. Namely, after they scheduled surgery once again 3 1/2 weeks away in May, 2013, I immediately had him start the Baking Soda Protocol.
The Baking Soda Protocol is the creation of Dr. Simoncini. The theory is that Sodium Bicarbonate, aka Baking Soda, has the ability to bring oxygen to a cancer and thus, kill it. i.e. if used correctly, you bring your pH up to 8 for a week, in which cancer cannot thrive. It also uses a small amount of sugar via Blackstrap Molasses to carry the baking soda to the cancer.
Based on a video of a guy who cured his prostate cancer with this method, I had my husband start on 1/2 tsp baking soda and a small amount of molasses, taken twice a day. The inspiring video’s star was a man named Vernon Johnston and he was diagnosed with stage IV aggressive prostate cancer which metastasized to his bones.
And since I had also read that inflammation could be a contributing factor for cancerous tumors, we raised his Astaxanthin supplement, which I had already put him on for something else. Astaxanthin is the carotonoid which causes the pink or red color in salmon, trout, lobster, shrimp, and other seafood. And it has excellent anti-inflammatory properties.
And after 3 1/2 weeks of this protocol, the day of his surgery came.
And once again, the surgeon came into the waiting room…and the look on his face was priceless!! THE TUMORS WERE TOTALLY GONE. i.e they went inside to find nothing. He was stymied and confused and embarrassed. And I could do nothing more than exclaim “It worked!” with a huge smile on my face! He underscored that they really were there when they first scoped them, and I told him Yes, my husband also saw the live screen showing the tumors when they did the initial scan. And to my astonishment, he never asked why I exclaimed that it worked. He just left the room.
After we got home and a few days went by, we resumed our normal life. In fact, for three months, he took care of ME after I had accidentally inhaled a massive amount of mold while leaf blowing. We followed that by being gone a month to visit his dear 95 year old mom and to see Yellowstone.
And just one week after we got home, the poop hit the fan all over again after he did a follow-up scope on his bladder.
Yesterday, he found out it had all returned, and it was quite bad. A terrible shock. I’ve wanted to cry for 24 hours…
So I went back to the computer. And this time, I can see that we made a mistake. All this time, we should have been testing his urine with a pH strip to make sure he was keeping himself at the right alkaline-favored level around 7.5. We never did that. I wanted to cry.
So yesterday afternoon, we started the protocol all over again, and also based on Dr. Sircus’s information: 1/2 tsp of sodium bicarbonate in water, but he is doing it three times a day, and we are now using a pH strip. We have moved his pH from 5.5 yesterday to nearly 7 today. To the baking soda drink, we have added magnesium and lugols iodine. We aren’t using molasses this time–they say it works fine without it.
He has also now started using the green powder in his morning drink–something I’ve used for years of which my in-law family has made fun of me about all that time. lol. It’s alkalinizing.
Our goal is to get him to 8 and hold that for a week. And surgery is scheduled for November 7th. So that gives us just over three weeks to hopefully create the same miracle we created earlier this year. And this time, he is never going to stop using the pH strips, and I have laid down the law that he has to stop drinking sodas (acidic) and curtail his consumption of coffee (acidic). I plan on teaching myself more about alkalinizing vs acidic food the next several days.
I so love my husband and want to keep him around much, much longer…
P.S. when he did his scope last Wednesday, this new surgeon asked about his disappearing tumors last May (unlike the last surgeon who had NO curiosity). When he explained, she was interested! SO this time, she took a PHOTO of the worst tumor to confirm there really is cancer in there…and seemed to be positiviely challenging us to remove them again. 🙂
